I’ve been working on a short fiction piece (flash fiction, actually) for the past few weeks. Writing it wasn’t a biggie. For me, it never is. Finishing it, however, is another matter.

I shared my little eight hundred word opus with a couple of friends. Writer friends, who unlike me, enjoy editing and are good at it.
